This weekend, Anne Hathaway wed her boyfriend of four years, Adam Shulman, in a romantic ceremony in Big Sur, California–but, of course, all we really want to know about is the dress.
Valentino revealed that he “did the dress” for the actress’s big day a few weeks ago–and now thanks to the trickling in of some (albeit grainy) paparazzi photos, we finally get to see what the custom Valentino frock looks like.
Since announcing her engagement to Adam Shulman back in November 2011, the details of Anne Hathaway’s impending nuptials have been fairly mum. Until now.
So Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds got married this weekend. And while photos of the blessed event have yet to be released (do we smell a People exclusive?), details are starting to trickle in. For one, the ceremony was held at Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina and Florence Welch apparently performed–but, of course, all we really want to know about is her dress.
It’s official! After two years of dating (and the birth of their son, Aleph, 14 months ago) Natalie Portman and her ballet choreographer beau Benjamin Millepied tied the knot this weekend, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting.

Who doesn’t love a summertime wedding? The food, the booze, the overall merriment that goes with celebrating holy matrimony… But the dress codes that come along with all those summer wedding invitations aren’t always so clear. ‘Black Tie Optional’?

The couture shows, which just wrapped in Paris, presented one exquisitely-crafted staggeringly beautiful gown after another. But there’s piece in particular that has always held our fascination–the last look, traditionally a bridal look. (How stunning was Lindsey Wixson as Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel couture bride?) So we decided to delve into the history a bit more. Read more →
The ManRepeller got married last night, proving that she isn’t actually repellant to the opposite sex, despite her best efforts. (Although the WSJ‘s Elizabeth Holmes helpfully tweeted these words of wisdom: “…And trust me, one’s ability to man repel only increases with marriage, @ManRepeller.”) She tied the knot last night (her guy still remains nameless Read more →
We got word last month that Richard Nicoll would be designing a bridal line for Topshop and today that we finally get a look at it, thanks to Vogue UK. The collaboration, aptly called Tie The Knot!, is the first foray into bridal for both Nicoll and Topshop–and suffice to say it’s not like any Read more →
She may be an unlikely style icon but Priscilla Chan (aka the new Mrs. Mark Zuckerberg) is causing a bit of wedding gown feeding frenzy. After the couple’s surprise and low-key nuptials were announced via Facebook over the weekend, details about the wedding started to emerge yesterday.
LA-based designer Claire Pettibone designed the lacy beaded dress, and she was completely unaware that Chan was going to wear the gown, according to Buzzfeed Shift. There were no consultations, and when asked where Chan bought the dress (which has been in the collection for about two years), Pettibone told Shift, “We’re honestly not sure. I think she may not have used her actual name.”
Bridal Fashion Week has just wrapped and as usual the shows offered up no shortage of frothy, intricately-designed gowns.
But this season there were also some unexpected sartorial developments: There were thigh-high slits, crop tops, and peplums aplenty. Oh and that whole white wedding dress thing? So passe. An array of designers showed floral, red and even black gowns.
And what do all these unconventional bridal trends have in common? We can trace all of their origins back to some notable Spring 2012 trends.

The Hunger Games has captured the imaginations of a lot of people with its strong visuals and heart-wrenching plot. It’s a story that’s easy to connect with emotionally–and let’s not forget the fact that the lead female rocked some amazing braids the whole movie. It inspired a nail polish line, multiple fan sites, a Tumblr, and the adoration of fashion and pop culture sites alike (yeah, us too), even if the costumes ultimately disappointed the fashion media. And now…weddings?
